      Fabulous Location

      5 of 5
      What a fabulous location - we stayed at Roseland Cottage, quite charming, for a week and it was more than we could have hope for. On arrival there was a delicious Cornish tea welcome and from then there after the week was just wonderful. The cottage itself was very comfortable, warm when the temperature dropped in the evening and the linen must get a mention for exceptional quality. Veryan is a delightful village and anyone who is unfamiliar with the Roseland Peninsula is really missing out on one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall. We so enjoyed the lovely walks and the scenery was stunning I would highly recommend Roseland Cottage, we had the most wonderful time and hope to return next year.
